This option is selected on 32-bit CPUs like Alchemy, which has 36-bit physical address. It will cause a warning about unmet

Just verified - selected Alchemy and DB1000 board and got

# CONFIG_64BIT is not set


And you didn't get a warning on "select 64BIT_PHYS_ADDR"? Strange, modern Kconfig should spit out one...

I also want to say that NetLogic Microsystems web site indicates that some of Alchemy CPU has only 14 bit DDR/SDRAM address, for exam - Au1550 ( but arch/mips/configs/db1550_defconfig (and pb1550) choses 64BIT_PHYS_ADDR too. Seems like something wrong here.

   High address bits on Alchemies are used to address PCI/PCMCIA space, not RAM.
